Gong & Sound Baths
Gong & Sound Baths
The gong is a powerful tool for relaxation and rejuvenation for the human body, indeed our Chiron Planet Gong, also works on animals. The gong envelopes the body in a sound wave that enables a depth of vibrational cellular healing that bypasses the mind. We also have a Mercury gong, usually both gongs may be played during a gong bath. Mercury gongs are the gong of communication and open the throat chakra to enable you to speak or write your truth. These two gongs work in harmony together during a gong bath and are the perfect sound vibration.
When we submit to the gong, we allow something higher than ourselves to stimulate our glandular system, change our brain waves, our respiratory and heart rate and neurons in our frontal cortex. The gong is the primordial sound of creation and is thought of as GOD (generating, organising and delivering ‘god’).
Gong vibrations may induce deep meditative and peaceful states. We can empower our health and creativity through the gong, use it as a tool to release ourselves from old patterns that no longer serve us. We can experience lucid dreaming. The gong works in inexplicable ways, we say ‘Let go and let Gong.’
This winter candlelit gong session is pure gong, and 60 minute sessions and may include some relaxation stretches, breathwork, and nidra practices, in preparation to receive the gong’s vibrational sounds. You will lie on the floor using sheepskins, bolsters and blankets to make yourself comfortable and then completely relax and let go.
We do not accept anyone who is pregnant for gong baths.

What do they say about Yogaspace Yorkshire?
The Women’s Group has been an amazing, welcoming, warm experience.
The positive energies and collective female wisdom has been brilliant – the thought provoking sessions followed by the yoga and final gong bath was the perfect balance – thank you Emma – and please can we do it all again!
I came on retreat and stayed at the cottages with my oldest daughter in June 2018 and January 2019.
Emma and Charlie are the perfect hosts they made us feel completely welcome in their beautiful home which sits in beautiful grounds surrounded by spectacular views of Yorkshire.
Yoga at Patrick Brompton Hall is a very special experience.
The beautiful and peaceful yoga studio is the perfect setting for yoga practice.
I have taken part in several Kundalini yoga classes during retreats at Patrick Brompton Hall and have loved all of them.
I was a novice to this particular yoga but the classes catered for all abilities and I was immediately made to feel comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my Kundalini yoga journey and I can’t wait to go back again soon!
To sum it up with one word: love. The best yoga retreat I have been to.
Amazing teacher, wonderful hosts, beautiful facilities, gorgeous surroundings, and delicious food.
Absolutely loved every bit of it
I have been to many different yoga retreats both in the UK and overseas and this one was by far the best.

I want to do your yoga Nidra class again – I slept so well. Thank you.
